7:09 am
we have a live look from the scene. kron forced jackie sissel. you are looking at some of the emergency vehicles they're trying to get traffic squeeze into one
7:10 am
line. you are looking at the eastbound side of highway 24 right at the over in the crossroads. a trailer from a big rig was struck by several vehicles. the big backup is in the west bound direction the current drive time is 40 minutes. from walnut creek to give you from the walnut creek interchange to get to children's hospital and the macarthur maison 24 west bound. >> thank you george. back to politics will continue to digest what happened yesterday in the election. republican challenger mitt romney lost as we know. he has concession speech last my taking a moment to congratulate president obama and his reelection. >> emily e. schmidt joins us live from boston to tell us what mitt romney is doing today. >> if high daria our youth? >> tell us about romney in what he plans to do today. >> the interesting thing is he does not have a public scandal today that the first
7:11 am
time in recent memory of where he is. that is the difference between running for president and in canada to loss. we are watching a really not mitt romney so much as watching republicans try to dissect the results from last night. try to determine what this meant for them as a look ahead to the next election. how to recover from a lost that last night they came here not quite certain that they would have. >> it is interesting one of the questions is what role does mitt romney have going for for the republican party. have you heard any whispering as to what it plans to do? >> no. we heard him say last night in his speech that everyone needs to work across the aisle to work together. a few minutes after that president obama came out and said he would like to extended hand to reach out to work with mitt romney in the future. will there be a partnership. it is hard to say. the most interesting thing we can say of the rhine romney ticket the person who is going to
7:12 am
washington is the vice presidential candidate paul ryan. he lost his bid for vice president however, he won reelection in his wisconsin congressional seat. he will be going back to washington. will be able to bring the romney vision to washington? will he take out a pack of is on. that is one of the things that we will have to see that could be a legacy from this campaign. >> thank you emily schmidt live in boston this morning. >> 7:12 a.m. is the time we want to go outside to give you a quick look. again this is our hot spot in the east bay. eastbound 24 accident has snarled traffic. we will get the latest update from george coming in.
7:13 am
7:14 am
7:15 am
we're back as we digest would happen in the presidential race and some of the propositions around california. >> yes. michael yaki our political analyst waking up to give us his input this morning. would find remarkable as you watched this race. >> i don't know it is remarkable what people were surprised at how quickly the race was called. if you
7:16 am
look at all the trend lines for the polling people who would have pretty much seen that the outcome was going to be what it cannot be. i think the question was house and would it be. everyone was kind of a way in for a long evening. at 8:20 p.m. we saw a call. and the question waiting for governor romney to concede. >> if nothing surprise you. nothing surprises. you predicted all correctly. >> i think what surprised me was florida. i did not think it would be as close and for the. i thought romney had a distinct advantage and had to is the first bay. the fact that obama did so well and is probably going to win florida was is a price to me. obama winning 303 was not surprising. his pathway to victory had a clear focus. his ground game was superb. the demographics broke his way. i think what we found out were to strengthen it won the latino voters are to be increasingly important in 2016. and 1 are both major
7:17 am
parties will have a latino at the top of the second point ticket. >> #2 is that the president has an amazing amount of luck when it comes to the surprises. in september of 2008 he and mccain were pretty much tied the the economic crash games. the cane kind of did this crazy i am going to suspend my campaign. obama did the no drama less equal less think about how we respond. obama shoots up. in 2012 are taking sandy comes in and what happens. romney has to basically spent his campaign. obama comes in at presidential does thinks chris christie and he becomes best-loved going on all the networks. when you look at the polling 42 percent of the people voted said that sandy had an impact on their vote. that is 15 percent said it was the major part of why they
7:18 am
voted. when you look at that with only 5% of the people voted on form policy may be 10 percent voted on health care. but 15 percent said it was sandy. there is a real october surprise in this election and it benefited the great benefit of president obama. >> before we go on to some of the state proposition is one more quick question on the national front. for the republican party you mentioned latino votes be important one for. are we about to seek an internal struggle in the republican party as to what our party is going forward. some people say we have to be more close to capture if that vote of the minority vote. others say no we were not conservative enough is the problem. >> the tea party rights movement and the more moderates we have to rethink our role in this. when you look what happened in northern virginia it looks like 90 percent of the latinos and northern
7:19 am
virginia voted for obama. that is an extraordinary number. >> let's move on to the propositions and out is the proposition 30. the i think that was a good thing jerry brown put a lot of political capital on this. unions went for it. >> i will put this out there. because of this victory because of the way he brought businesses and people together this i think it was a good trial on four whether jerry brown is on to think seriously about running in 2016. >> really. for president? >> yes. to meet the visibility that the energy he would 4 on proposition 30 in the fact that he won against people spending is zillion dollars against it is a good sign for him. >> how old will >>. >> i did not think age is a matter. >> the runs. aids is
7:20 am
becoming less and less of an issue whether it is on the young in. in terms of like a president obama on or on the older in. as long as everything up here is working and you look fit people give you a pass. >> we will continue to talk to you in digest the elections stuff throughout the morning. do not always take a little nap. >> if ok. i was a slate of the desk. >> if you want to connect with michael it could follow on twitter his handle is atyaki .com or you can read his block likely aikido,. >> we are just getting another light open in the east bound direction now. we have gone from two to three lines open here. we're all lanes were obstructed by this major accident. it was a big rig that lost its trailer at as a result several vehicles ran into that trailer creating a multi vehicle crash. this is in orinda in the eastbound

politics one of the hi high- profile propositions, proposition 30 was an to increase funding for schools and stave off a multibillion-dollar budget shortfall which would directly impact schools. will transit standing by live at lincoln middle school he has been out there all morning long. >> 54% get 46% notes. we have to faculty members here we will interview them in a few seconds. let me set the table for proposition 30 so you would know what is going on with the proposition. take a look at your screen. what it does it will infuse $6 billion annually but for them to do that it will raise the sales tax a quarter cent over the next four years also for a household that makes $250,000 and more that will also increase the income tax. money obviously involved. people say yes
7:33 am
more education. the majority of those who voted against it said exit polls said that is because it is the slow economy i do not have a lot of money to spare. when government should be taking care of business in not turning to deck stairs again. >> if let's talk to the people were on both sides of this. here's chris. you are with the teachers' union why were you for proposition 30? >> it is absolutely clear how devastated education in california has been over the last two years. you said that six states the government ought to take care of things we are the state we have the money. i think four years and should get us through the years while the state legislature does what is ought to do which is to figure out how you will adequately fund education. i think we can do that. a quarter cent across the board for a quarter percent across the board seems reasonable to me. and to tax the people of the
7:34 am
highest level is too much and $50,000 single $500,000 for a marriage couple that is a pretty high threshold where as the of a proposition like proposition 38 was going to tax everybody had a much higher rate regardless. >> as i am speaking to you here is kevin over there shaking his head. you are almost like to know i disagree. why are you so adamantly against proposition 30? >> if it does not do anything to guarantee that the tax money raised goes to education. all it does is go to the general fund and we know that politicians waste money. i don't see there is anything in the proposition will guarantee the money will go to education. this is more money taken from me. >> so you will be at the polls with the people voted no sang we don't go nowhere the money goes into you should take care of business are you turning to people were struggling and asking for money again. >> they need to take care of business and i think they have enough money. they have enough money to run the state that does have to run
7:35 am
it in an efficient manner. >> that we play teacher. when you guys go back to school you guys play nice. he was like no no no. >> we are used to that we have been at it for years. >> they are almost like brother and sister of both sides of the issue. again the governor will have a news conference at 11:00 a.m. this morning. to get his reaction the day after he thought he was going to win late last night we heard from him but now that it is official, officially time in a proposition 30. >> very good will. for a bottle is adjusted proposition 38 went down in defeat. this is to of many propositions which are watching the news room with more. >> let us talk about proposition 32 and 33. proposition 32 for that proposition failed. this is the proposition that would have limited contributions from unions. with a livid the money taken out of union members pay checks to be used for political contributions. that goes down. supporters of for unions here in the state of
7:36 am
california. the donor list was released $11,000,000.40 yes on proposition 32 came from different groups of the state of arizona up that began for one group to another to another which is a cost to its money laundering in the state of california. on to proposition 33 this was about auto insurance measure of the ballot. if you keep your polish origin sector good driver discount from one issuer to the other. what it would have done for people getting in short for the first time or people did not have a car and got a car again, their rates would skyrocket. . this is on the by one man the head of mercury in shorts there was a similar product on the ballot two years ago. if that one failed and so this is the proposition 3 goes down. >> richmond voters overwhelmingly said no to a tax on soda and other sugary drinks. backers of the measure argued the tax would reduce the consumption of soft drinks which are blamed
7:37 am
for child obesity while also generate revenue for youth programs. opponents said its businesses would lose millions of dollars in sales and prices would go up for consumers. let us take a look at the vote margin by two to one. voters said no to this new tax. the measure was only able to garner 33 percent of the approval vote. >> election dominated social media conversation on election day. in the last election about 37% of america said if the use of social networking site. fast forward to now and to third say they are socially engaged quite a bit more. twitters saw rates of more than three to 27,000 tweets permitted and on facebook and the what terms use with variations of the word vote. meanwhile, is the cra instagram questioning photography at some polling places. >> you can see the dow is

8:19 am
people's mind sets have evolved on the issue of gay marriage and same-sex issues. a good question for you this the first elections since is in united. the ruling by the supreme court that corporations are people too. >> a billion dollars spent in this collection what have we learned going forward as far as the money in presidential elections? >> if you are a television station a mile is a good investment. i think they spent nearly two london million dollars and ohio along. the president has said he wants to make repeal insists to the constitutional amendment. in reality i don't think it will happen unless people believe speak rise of about it. and say they are mad as heck and would not take it anymore. do i think it is likely to happen. i just do not see it. i think people learn how to turn out. in fact the media did a great job in fact checking all of ads that came out. using twitters and the social media and using the free media irresponsible

8:21 am
final lane opened. it is the west bound ride that is taken a beating this morning. take a look at the traffic maps you will see. eastbound traffic backed up into berkeley oakland. through rock ridge through the tunnel. look at the ride on westbound 24. and southbound 680. southbound 680 was backed up martinez because of the delays on west bound to four. the drive time from here to here just 45 minutes. coming down from the phoenician up ridged almost the same amount time and really rough ride it has put extra pressure on highway 4 and interstate 580. also be delays for the right 1880 southbound for the fremont milpitas corridor. as a san mateo bridge moves pretty well we have seen less pressure on southbound 880 is a tough ride through milpitas down to 237. a quick look at the bridges.
8:22 am
the bay bridge what back up no delays here west bound. mostly because the traffic on sunday 4 is being held up. your ride to the san mateo bridge still doing well a 13 minute drive time. we have not seen the spiked to 22 minutes that's been familiar for the last several weeks. for the golden gate bridge ride it has been heavy for about the last 35 minutes. in southbound direction. we have no reports of problems but it is jam-conceit. >> erica. >> good morning george we are taking a look at the cloud cover from above and our mount tam cam. locally dense fog especially in the north bay with visibility at a mile and a half for santa rosa. just a mile in napa. we have a lot of low-lying ground fog to contend with especially along the coast. concord drop down to 5 mi. to commuting to hayward. maybe leave a little extra time out there and be careful on the roadways. take a look at afternoon

8:31 am
that the cross rose and you concede that emergency crews are on the right-hand side. this eastbound ride was a complete stop for so long that backed up traffic everywhere. we have been talking about this on 24. look at what it has done. it has affected the drive on northbound 13. because of the problem on westbound 24 southbound 680 traffic has been jammed up all the way from martinez to concord. >> for your ride onto a southbound earlier there was a recurring accident. this left traffic jammed all the way to daly city. this tobacco was clearing but it

8:36 am
failed then it would have replaced rather allowed to the insurance companies to base your rates on your driving record. and it would've been a bad effect on people getting insurance for the first time. >> the election had a huge effect on social media. in the last election about 37% of americans stated that they use a social network aside. if you fess for tonight it was very high periods two-thirds stated that they're socially engaged atwitter saw their rates go of due to the election. on face but the number one tool that would choose what variations of the word vote. >> the dow jones industrial average is now falling. the
